Having a lovely time

I've had a lovely day and a half knitting teeny gorgeousness (and doing a bit of tidying and blog-catching up) and the knitting is all thanks to the lovely Julie.  So I don't know why I'm only showing you snippets as you will undoubtedly know what they are - but they are presents for friends and one may be reading this before she gets it (if you're there Bernie, don't tell the others!)  If you haven't made them yet then I strongly recommend them - they are highly addictive and so is the little extra element that Julie has recently added - lovely, lovely knitting :o)

I have also been doing a lot of running as I am trying to get ready for an organised 10k run at the end of next month.  I'm terrified and very tempted to pull out - which is why I'm telling you so that you will all encourage me to do it!  I can't run that far yet - but I can run/walk it in about an hour and a half so that's probably what I'll do - don't let me back out!

P.S I KNEW there was something else I wanted to say!  Is anyone going to the Country Living show on Saturday???

A belated Happy Mother's Day everyone!

This is my lovely haul from the Little Lockets (and Mr Locket too) - it's just a bit unfortunate that I wasn't organised enough to send my own Mum a card and present - although I did buy her 4 cards in an attempt to find one that was decent, and I planned to give her the exact same present as my sister although neither of us could work out how to get it to her (nothing too clever, just a book for her kindle).

Meanwhile I have been busy knitting presents for friends.........

A pair of Fetching mittens for Alison

and just-finished-today Broadripple socks for Kerry.

But my best present - to myself - was fitting into a pair of Dot's size 12 jeans yesterday!  Result :o)

Sometimes helping choose sixth forms isn't all hard work!
